The Florida Highway Patrol responded to a two-vehicle crash in the Fairview Shores neighborhood on Tuesday, assisted by the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Troopers said the crash occurred just after 1 p.m. at the Baltimore Dr. and Adanson St. intersection, involving a Silver Toyota and a Silver Mercedes. Both drivers were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center as trauma alerts, having suffered severe injuries.

Just before 4 p.m., a FOX 35 News crew observed multiple law enforcement vehicles along Adanson St., just north of Lee Rd. On nearby Baltimore Dr. were a Toyota and a Mercedes, both of which appeared to have sustained front-end damage.


Troopers said the Mercedes was reported as a carjacked vehicle, which is being investigated by the sheriff’s office.  FOX 35 News has contacted the sheriff's office for additional information and is awaiting a response. 

Chris Gilmore saw the driver of the Toyota after he was cut out of his car.

"He was not speaking. He looked very stunned, obviously, and I’m sure he was in shock," he explained. "I’m thankful that no one else got hurt; it didn’t go into anyone’s houses; no one was walking and got hit."

Neighbor Ralph Imgriani said it easily could have been him who was hit by the speeding Mercedes. 

I could’ve been down there in that other car, and I could be the one in the hospital or laying in the morgue right now," he said.

The crash remains under investigation.
